  • Multimodal Optical Nanoprobe

    March 21, 2011

    A novel multimodal optical nanoprobe is incorporated into a transmission electron microscope (TEM) sample holder. The nanoprobe allows scientists to perform all the usual experiments done in a TEM in addition to those involving optical excitation and measurement of the sample, electrical measurements on the sample, scanning tunneling microscopy (STM), and combinations of these measurements. Of particular utility is the ability to simultaneously measure optical and electrical properties of the sample at the nanoscale.
